lyrics

i'm getting tired of this one-way conversation
i've been singing at the top of my lungs
and nothing seems to be getting through
i guess these are songs you've already been sung
and the girls say don't get lost in the job
it's just a way to make ends meet
but it's so hard when i sing and you don't hear me
you just keep staring at your feet

but there's good news in the paper today
this war keeps draggin' on
and they're sending more sailors out to sea
to get sucked in by a song

so i sing my songs in a minor key
but it don't seem to do any good
i guess they're all a whole lot stronger than me
they just sail on home like they should

and i've never been much good at this job
but it's the only place that i call home
so i sink down and get under the waves
and they keep sailin' on

but there's good news in the paper today
this war keeps draggin' on
and they're sending more sailors out to sea
to get sucked in by a song

so i guess she's a pretty one waiting in your bed
i could've made you the king of the sea
but i watched as you turned that ship around
you chose her instead of me

but there's good news in the paper today
this war keeps draggin' on
and they're sending more sailors out to sea
to get sucked in by a song
